- A. MIO DISCOVER PLUS: Wireless synchronization is only possible with the Discover Plus. Check on the device whether the WiFi sync function is enabled via Main menu> Settings> WIFI sync.
B. MIO DISCOVER: For the Discover, synchronization is done via Mio's CycloAgent software. Download after login at www.mioshare.com/help. Now connect your device to your PC via a USB cable and open the CycloAgent Software. Then it will be checked whether new routes are available for transfer.
- You can now consult your routes from your device via Tours
Or watch this video to see how it is done.
Attention! Your Cyclo recordings are also synchronized with your RouteYou account.
If this automatic method fails, we advise you to go for the manual upload.
